Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

No sound from loud speakers.

 

I dont hear any notifications, no sound when I put a call on "speaker", no alarm sound, no music sound, nothing.

 

Phone calls work fine though. Everything works over the earpiece as well. Its just the loud speaker thats not working.

 

I have all the notifications and volume set to full.

I have tried restarting the phone.

 

Any ideas what to do???

Re: Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

So happy I found this thread! I have had a refubished for 6 months now and was "nicely" told I should buy a Go phone there was nothing beyond a reset they could do for me. Thank you for saving me the money they wanted me to spend. Worries me that this is a known problem with a known solution but people are still being told the only way to fix it is to buy a new phone. I'm going to seriously rethink my AT&T service when my contract ends, Verison is sounding better and better.

Re: Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

Just want to add one more confirmation both of the problem and the solution!  I lost sound/call alerting and chatted with AT&T tech support who suggested a reset, which I was reluctant to do with them remotely since it sounded like a real hassle.  I found this forum and tried the thumb pressure on the speaker and it worked like a charm!  Sound is back as good as before!

Sure am glad I didn't go for the captivate. I have not one single issue with this infuse whatsoever other then waiting on GB. Other then that, awesome phone. It's taken me from my pc by almost 95%. Nothing I can't do here that the pc can do

Re: Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

Yea i too have the same problem but i was just wondering do i actually have to open up the phone and press on the actual speaker in the phone ? Or just the speaker grill on he front of the phone .

Re: Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

I am having this same issue.  I am on my 3rd Captivate.  The one I have now is a refurb I got after my last one was stolen.  I have had it for 5 months and this just started happening a couple of days ago.  I'm afraid I will miss my alarm.  I will try pressing on the speakerphone next time it goes out, but I'm thinking I need to take it in and get yet another replacement.  Between the random shut offs and this, this phone is not built properly.

Re: Samsung Captivate: Sound not working over loud speaker

I had just finished some dubious activities on my phone when my speaker went out. The leap I made of course was that I had caused the problem. So of course I re-stocked, fixing the speaker, or so I thought.

 

The problem came back but thanks to you I know where the problem lies and have re "dubious-ed" my phone with all working well.

 

Thanks for taking the time to explain the solution.
